Teaching Statement

You will find my teaching style and philosophy for counseling students to be existential in nature. It is my intention to facilitate learning through course content, discussions, self-reflection, and integrating theory and practice. My approach aims to cultivate extraordinary counselors who embody practical and skill-based knowledge through the use of self and awareness of common factors for effective therapy practice. Within the classroom, I will create a collaborative, engaging, and thought-provoking learning environment in an effort to support your development as a mental health counselor.

Rashida’s research interest focuses on the couples dynamic and the process of creating relationship satisfaction among African American Couples.
